No issue with Nexus 4 supply, says LG
LG claims production of the Nexus 4 is moving along as planned despite Google’s claims to the contrary
Since it launched in November, the Android 4.2-powered Nexus 4 been plagued by what Google described last month as ‘scare and erratic’ supplies from LG.
The handset, which comes in either 8GB or 16GB versions, has consistently sold out on Google’s Play store. Many initially attributed this to the sheer volume of demand for cuttroat-priced device, but we now know that it was a supply-side issue and that Google, for whatever reason, did not have enough handsets.
But, apparently, this has nothing to do with LG. The company claims production of the Nexus 4 is pressing ahead as planned at its Pyeongtaek factory in South Korea.
An LG official, speaking to South Korean publication Chosun IIbo, confirmed that LG’s supply is not at fault here, implying that Google is somehow to blame – either for deliberately under stocking its Play store or because it completely under estimated demand for the Nexus 4.
Either way, plenty of people are still struggling to get what many, including Know Your Mobile, are calling the greatest Nexus handset ever built.
